Celtic and Rangers will join English sides Chelsea and Arsenal in the 2018 Europa League.
The four British clubs in this season’s competition have learned who they will face this season after the draw was made on Friday.
The two Scottish sides face very difficult draws – but more for the quality of opposition than the daunting travel schedule.
Steven Gerrard’s Rangers will play Villarreal, Rapid Vienna and Spartak Moscow, while Celtic face FC Salzburg, RB Leipzig and Rosenborg.
Arsenal face the unenviable task of trips to Azerbaijan to play Qarabag and Ukraine for FC Vorskla as well as the more recognisable Sporting.
Chelsea will head out to Belarus to play BATE Borisov, Greece for PAOK and Hungary for Vidi FC. The two Scottish sides face very difficult draws – but more for the quality of opposition than the daunting travel schedule.
